others. i mother was a special-education teacher. [cheers] my dad worked on the army base. my parents were crystal clear about what they wanted for us and that was an education. so a lot of what we did to give back was in the educational arena. i love that president obama has the same values. he knows that, for our nation, and education cannot be a luxury. it will strengthen the middle- class and strengthen the work force that will keep us innovated. if you're thinking about how you can search or how you can follow the president's example to honor this national day of service, start with this. make a difference in one child's life. mentor a student. donate a book to a library, donate supplies to a school. volunteer at an afterschool program. i am here because i have someone looking out for me. i'm telling you how important my education was. someone was pushing me to succeed. but i want to make sure the next generation has that as well. so last year, when i launched the eva longoria foundation, i focused on helping advance latinas in education. a belief that america should be a place w

investments in education and research and development, innovation. to get control of the energy future. all of that will be a part of the president's vision for the next four years. >> you know, bob schieffer mentioned earlier this morning the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, the president is proposing a number of changes to the gun laws in this country. how much a part of the president's resolve will that be in the months coming? >> well, the thing -- the president always said that, you know, you have to do many things at once when you're president, and that's a very important thing. we can't keep replicating these tragedies and it's not just the big tragedies, but the small, smaller strategy dtragedies than the streets every day. so he's determined to move forward on this package of laws. they're not the only things we need to do. some of the things have less to do with government and more to do with what we -- what we do in our home. what our children play and in terms of video games and what they watch. but certainly we need to do something about guns. we are hopeful that we're at

government for stimulus spending more infrastructure investment. education investment, things that president obama are necessary for a economy. there is no political will there for those things, only now, how to get out of spiraling debt crisis. how to take it head on. we have a deadline with the debt ceiling. at which we'll be at the precipice of default. president obama certainly made the call today, for, equality. he made the call for us to work together, but he will have to do a lot to get there. because the political will is not there, for his agenda of 2009, nor is it there for this expansive agenda. back to cabinet secretaries, he has not even filled out a cabinet, happened pretty late. he has to fill out a national defense team, security team. we're looking at fights, even though we imagined they will all be confirmed. we're looking big fights on those before we even get to the state of the union address and move onto the debt ceiling deadline. there is so much acrimony. if he wants to get back to using the government to try to stablize the economy, that is political will t

in education and health care, would also be put on the agenda, and those would also be addressed. certainly a lot of that has not happened, and there is certainly a disappointment across large sectors of the black community. but it is also realistic also a sense of the constraint that the president has had. and it is not just about the president. it is also bought congress, about state houses, and about governors. there is a broader political strategy that has to enfold to achieve some of the things that people hoped would happen when president obama was elected. host: barbara, anything to add to that? guest: it is often hard to maintain the kind of levels of excitement from the first inaugural to the second, and that applies to any president, particularly this one because the expectations were so high. i compared it to a second marriage. hard to rekindle that sparked sometimes. perhaps it is the more like renewing the vows. the american people ought to fall in love again with the president. they want to have that hope and expectation. there are lots of people here. i walked up a

for the vulnerable and the poor in education. and then you saw that the campaign rhetoric about the few and the many was not just campaign rhetoric. he tied it to the idea of america, that when we replaced the king, we didn't replace tyranny with the privileges or the few. and he kent through his campaign about we have to do it together not on the backs of the view. so i think we have calling on citizens as you're suggesting to act, to come forward and he was defending government. he was defending government in our time, that maybe it has its problems and it's work out, but essentially was telling citizens, i need your voice, i need your action. and he talked about immigration, finance reform, things that people didn't expect. but it's sort of the journey that's not finished rather than a policy-walking thing. so i think it's really the agenda for the next term and the awareness that he won't get it done from inside. he needs these characters from outside to come and is be part of the process. >> i'm very happy to have tom brokaw with us. and, tom, the president hit on a topic you h
